You are probably right -- but "SimpleUserFolder" is really "simple" (which
sometimes is good).
Had *you* used all these reusable components to provide the functionality
in SUF, standard users could have used then out of the box -- with just
sumitting a configuration page. As it is now, they have to think
about (e.g.) cache management and invalidation.
I would like to stress that I do not think SUF were bad.
I just defend my statement that "exUserFolder" is something
like a big brother to SUF.
Simple is beautiful, if it meats the given requirements...
